The 2019 Outback looks purposeful in its exterior design and strikes a good balance between family wagon and adventure-ready crossover thanks to a subtle yet elegant body design highlighted by rugged plastics around the front fog lights and rear bumper. So its looks match its purpose and functionality perfectly. The raised roof rails combined with 8.7 inches of ground clearance adds to the offroad-ready persona. The 2.5i Premium gets the above-mentioned fog lights, and the Limited gets bigger wheels, but the Outback looks great in any trim.
The Outback is long and tall for a quasi-wagon, and Subaru's figures come in at 189.9/72.4/66.1 inches length/width/height (with roof rails). This makes the 2019 Outback 8.4 inches longer, 7.9 inches wider, but 2.5 inches shorter than the competing Toyota Rav4. The Outback has slightly better ground clearance but the Jeep Trailhawk beats both with 8.8 inches of clearance. The approach and departure angles of the Outback is 18.4/ 22.7 degrees, besting the RAV4's 19 and 21 degrees. Weighing in at 3,624 lbs, the Outback isn't a lightweight by any measure, but it carries its weight well.
